The trip to Miami began rather ominously, when the team’s commercial plane lost the use of one of its engines on its descent, which necessitated a hasty greeting from assorted fire and rescue vehicles on the runway.

As a freshman, David Streeten was the premier face-off man on a Binghamton lacrosse squad that was picked to finish sixth in the seven team America East Conference.
